Katherine was born on December 27,1983, in Oklahoma City to Pamela Kay Estes-Roberts-Vetovitz and Wendell Roberts. Katherine was an only child and remained in Oklahoma City all her life.

Katherine was baptized at Sunnymeade Baptist church, later became an Episcopalian, and joined St. David’s Episcopal Church. She enjoyed church, sang in the choir, and loved helping with the children. Due to health issues, Katherine never had children of her own. Yet, she was loved by many of her friends’ children and known as “Aunt Kathy.” Next to God, Katherine’s family was most important to her. She also loved animals, and always had some kind of pet around her. Katherine’s service animals included a toy chihuahua named Tiki and a tabby cat named Monster. Katherine absolutely loved dolphins. Her entire apartment was decorated with almost every imaginable dolphin. 

Katherine was kind-hearted, caring, and always concerned about others. She even selflessly chose to be a donor at the end of her life to help anyone, in any way she possibly could.

Katherine is survived by her mother, Pamela Vetovitz; father, Wendell Roberts; and countless friends.
